MOD Alliance Launch Event
Thursday, April 4, 2019 | 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM
Seattle, Washington’s CITY HALL
THANK YOU FOR ATTENDING!
The MOD Alliance Launch Event was the kickoff of the national dialogue on Mobility on Demand, fostering a discussion about creating an environment for a scalable, repeatable MOD model that allows for metropolitan and regional differences. Over the course of 2019, the MOD Alliance plans to identify legislative and regulatory barriers at the federal level and develop policy recommendations to encourage deployments; encourage partnerships at the state and local levels among all stakeholders, and create a framework by which the private sector can engage in providing solutions.
This event showcased regional successes and challenges related to deploying MOD in the Seattle metropolitan area and created a dialogue among stakeholders to address guiding federal policy on MOD and collaboration with the private sector in providing solutions.
